The Register writes the Centriq dream may still live on, but in China. Qualcomm will continue to let Guizhou Huaxintong Semiconductor Technology Co, Ltd (HXT) develop the technology.
"Qualcomm is reducing our investments in the data center business but remains committed to business obligations and upcoming compute opportunities at the edge of 5G networks and AI inference cloud solutions," a spokesperson told The Register over the weekend. "Qualcomm plans to continue supporting the HXT server joint venture in China. We are fully focused on executing on our 5G program."
